There is nothing as rewarding to me as a student who comes back semesters or years later and says, "What I learned with you has made a positive difference in my life."
It doesn't matter how well I teach if students don't learn. Any innovation or pedagogy I bring to the classroom bears this in mind and is focused solely on student learning. There is a unique way to connect with every student and it is my job to find it.
